Equality Coalition

The Equality Coalition is a broad alliance of non-governmental organisations working to ensure that the equality duty is put into practice, and to increase the public profile of the equality agenda in Northern Ireland. The Coalition consists of members of all the categories covered by Section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act.

The Northern Ireland Council for Ethnic Minorities (NICEM), Disability Action, Women's Support Network, the Upper Springfield Development Trust and the Linc Resource Centre are among the founder members of the Equality Coalition.

The Coalition meets on a monthly basis, discussing ways in which members can most effectively engage in the range of consultations emanating from the public sector.
